Crypto Quantique and iMQ to enable quantum secure chip-to-cloud connection

Crypto Quantique’s QuarkLink embedded and cloud software platform provides secure connectivity to ensure compliance with incoming EU legislation

London, UK – January 10, 2024 – Crypto Quantique, a quantum-safe cybersecurity solutions provider, has announced a strategic partnership with iMQ Technology, a MCU and security chip innovator, as part of its strategic expansion in the Taiwan market.

This commercial alliance is intended to leverage the capabilities of Crypto Quantique’s QuarkLink platform, supporting secure connectivity for businesses seeking to integrate IoT products and utilises iMQ’s security chip – SQ7131 – with cloud services.

This collaborative approach will help customers to seamlessly incorporate innovative features into their products and conduct secure over-the-air updates throughout the entire life cycle of their devices. Notably, this is achieved without the need for substantial investment in engineering resources or acquiring in-depth knowledge of chip-to-cloud security.

iMQ’s security chip technology allows customers to upgrade their products’ security with the integration of a pre-provisioned SQ7131 security chip. The implementation instantly enables capabilities of identity authentication, secure communication and encrypted over the air software updates which are aligned with forthcoming regulations.

Proactively anticipating the quantum computing era, Crypto Quantique is enhancing the resilience of QuarkLink through the integration of post-quantum cryptography. These quantum-resistant techniques will ensure the sustained efficacy of security measures, even in the face of potential quantum-powered attacks.

In a landscape where over 20 countries worldwide are introducing stringent IoT security regulations, including the forthcoming EU Cyber Resilience Act, which mandates a baseline security level for compliance or risk financial penalties, Crypto Quantique’s chip-to-cloud IoT security emerges as a significant solution as it not only ensures compliance with evolving regulations but also mitigates risks across global supply chains.
